Skaka - Shaked Percussion by Klevgränd

Klevgränd just released Skaka - Shaked Percussion. This is the full-package; offering both sequencing and samples designed for the unique character of shaken percussion instruments. Skaka arrives on sale for 50% off on iOS, macOS, and Windows. The iOS version includes AUv3, with a bunch of automatable parameters!

Skaka - Shaked Percussion

Skaka is a sample-based sequencer plugin for shaked percussion instruments. The sequencer and sample player engine are built from the ground up with respect to the needed parameters, and has exclusive features for playing and interacting with these types of sounds. Each event added to any of the 12 independent sequencers can control multiple parameters like pitch, velocity (as in how fast the instrument is shaked) and envelope. It can also be synchronized to the tempo and playhead position of the host application.

Giving full control of shuffle/swing amount, a complex humanizer settings panel, internal awareness of in- and out shakes (yes, they sound different), using grids divided into triplets/quintuplets/septuplets, time fine-tuning and variable sequence lengths, Skaka can get very close to how a human percussionist would sound in almost any tempo without any use of degrading time stretching or similar techniques.

In addition to the 12 sequencers and their internal parameters, there is a reverb, a room simulator, and a high shelf filter.

Skaka comes with nearly 200 ready-made patterns covering most genres and styles.

NOTE! Skaka is an AUv3 instrument plugin that only works in an AUv3 compliant host like Garageband, AUM, Cubasis, Beatmaker 3, Auria etc. It does not work as a standalone application.


The main view shows 12 slots containing a sequencer and its parameters. These sequencers are started and stopped by MIDI Note On and Note Off (one for each MIDI note from C to B).

To reveal and edit a sequencer's events and parameters, tap the sequencer overview (in the middle of each slot).

Full documentation is available inside the standalone version of the app or at

Preview: Analog Rhythm 909 Drum Machine from AudioKit

Developer Matthew Fecher is reportedly unafraid of Detroit, where he learned the secrets of the 909.

Video Description:

We’re back from Detroit. Grateful to learn from music pioneers to make this new drum machine:

Detroit is a name synonymous with dance music, it’s the birthplace of Motown and techno. It’s a city where pioneers used drum machines in a way that would change the world. The four on the floor kick. The pulsating rhythms. They flow through this city like an undercurrent.

Detroit is a city that’s been through a lot of heart break. Just like all of us. But like Detroit, we’re back. And rising and pushing forward.

We’ve created a new analog drum machine. One that feels more alive today than machines in the ’80s. Rather than re-create something from the past exactly, we were inspired by Detroit, its people and music to create a new beat. One that is alive and has a pulse of its own.

It’s been a tough summer. We want to make the best app we can for you. The 909 will be coming out later this month. We appreciate your patience. The good news: It will be AUv3 & will support iOS 11 & up. Thanks everyone. And, stay tuned.
